Are you sure that you've wired your premises electrics correctly? That
could cause power supplies to keep blowing.
Do you have enough power supplies for the boards and other options you
have installed in the system? That could be doing it too. Or if you
had a boardset with an unfused short in it or something, although I
would think there's probably fuses in the backplane or something.
